We all have things that we don’t want to do, especially tasks that we find boring, repetitive or challenging. This could be tasks at work, household chores or studying. Procrastination becomes a problem for us if we get into the habit of pushing things away and avoiding doing whatever it is that generally requires our immediate attention.
